The decade's most triggering comedy
Comedian Chelsea Handler said during an interview on “The View” this week that she would vent her rage against President Donald Trump and his supporters at the airport by visiting the Fox News section of the first-class lounge and verbally assaulting them.
“Well, I would walk into the airports, I would go to the first class lounge, check in and then run over to the Fox News section and start assaulting people,” she said, as reported by Newsbusters. “Like, I would go in and be, like, you’re a racist and then I would run out and then I would run back in and go, do you want your daughter to have rights because she won’t, and then I would run out. Then I would run back into the Fox News section and I would go, are you still a racist? I mean, I was out of my tree, and my level of outrage was just not — I couldn’t handle it anymore.”
“I was just — my veins were throbbing and I wanted to learn how to talk to Trump supporters or conservatives at this time in 2016. Now Trump supporters, I don’t have anything to say to them anymore at this juncture, but I wanted to be able to have the conversations that I was being prevented from having because of my anger,” she continued. “So that really was the way to get into therapy and then I realized my anger, yes, I hate Donald Trump. Yes, I find him to be a white supremacist and I find all of his policies to be abhorrent, but my real anger was something that happened to me as a child that I had never dealt with. When we don’t deal with our injuries, they creep up on us and tap us on the shoulder when we least expect it.”
Handler generated controversy last week when she scolded rapper 50 Cent for endorsing Trump in response to Biden’s ridiculous tax plan.
“So he doesn’t want to pay 625 in taxes because he doesn’t want to go from ’50 Cent’ to ’20 Cent’ and I had to remind him that he was a black person, so he can’t vote for Donald Trump and that he shouldn’t be influencing an entire swath of people who may listen to him because he’s worried about his own personal pocketbook,“ Handler told Jimmy Fallon.
Shortly thereafter, 50 Cent denounced President Donald Trump, though his sarcastic “Scarface” reference made it unclear if he was joking. “F**k Donald Trump, I never liked him,” he wrote. “For all I know he had me set up and had my friend Angel Fernandez killed but that’s history. LOL.”
During her appearance on “The View,” Handler confirmed that 50 Cent does not support Trump and supports Biden.
“He called me the other night, two nights ago. We spoke for about a half an hour, and I, you know, I texted him. I DM-d him and I said, can you please call me about this? I don’t want this to be public because I want to know if you are serious about supporting Trump,” she said.
“So he called me and he wasn’t serious. He was just screwing around on his Twitter. He is supporting Joe Biden. He made that very clear to me, and he said that I was able to tell you girls and tell any other press I did that he is supporting Joe Biden,” she continued. “So — and then we talked and, you know, had a cute little conversation. I did promise, you know, to pay his taxes and then I found out it’s illegal to pay somebody to vote for your candidate. So I offered him another form of payment and we’ll see if he takes me up on it, but I don’t have to pay him. He’s already a Biden supporter.”
